We've got problems everywhere on the pitch. We didn't create a single clear goal chance in open play for over 90 minutes. We can go on about Rudiger and Christensen, but I see more general problems with the team. 

Poor pace, poor transition, lack of pressure on the ball, no tracking back, players walking ..., we just don't look like a team of players fighting for a win. I've been saying this for months. This is not how a top team plays. 

We are not a top team, tonight just proves it.

Painful to see Christensen and Rudiger exposed so badly. Credit to Antonio, who gave Abraham a lesson in hold up play and how to pressurise defenders. So many poor performances. Only Willian and Pulisic came out with any credit.

Frank will be bitterly disappointed by that result. A missed opportunity.

The worst thing is he gave a interview in today’s paper saying he wants to be great defender for us for years after one good game against city he must be delusional 

Problem is there isn’t many false 9 strikers he can defend against. There’s a lot more Antonio’s and Calvert Lewin’s in this league that can bully this kid. It’s embarrassing to see a CB completely ran ragged like that. All he needed to do was get tight to Antonio and foul him and the move breaks down.

If we don't make the CL places Lampard will be gone, a pair of joke Center halfs  yet he continues to pick them..

jorgi can't get a game...yet Willian plays every match (yes he scored both goals but does nothing for the other 89 mins except give the ball away)

Oh do give over 🙄

Zouma wouldn't have been bullied by Antonio tonight.

Dreadful, dreadful performance, five minutes of effort can't eclipse eighty five of brainlessness. 

Frank has to start getting tough with these clowns 

Rudiger, awful

Christensen, like a bewildered child

Tammy woefully out of form. 

We desperately need two top centre halves, desperately.

The only thing worse than that defensive performance was this post.

Apparently I wasn't watching the same game as a lot of people, certainly not Gary Neville.
All in all we were pretty much the better side - more so than against Villa or Leicester.  4 games, 3 wins is about right for our last 4 performances.  No complaints that this one didn't go our way when 2 close games did.  
And last time WHU beat us twice in a season they got relegated - a good omen.  And we nicked Joe Cole and GJ cheap afterwards.

Willian was good - and there was a brilliant cross that RLC should have tapped in.
For 85 mins (all but start of H2) we were the stronger side.

The offside VAR was blatant - the striker kicked the ball into the guy on the floor and then put in the rebound.  VAR never showed the shot or Kepa because they had already decided that, they were only considering how far offside he was (plenty).

Their 2nd should also have not been given - Antonio blatantly dives when challenged by Rudiger and the ref just plays on - he should stop play and book him.  VAR should also call the dive and rule the goal our.

Pulisic was astar - I guess we all agree on that.

Quick question - say RM come back to us and say how about a straight swap:  Pulisic for Hazard?
What do you say?
